Over the week of Spring Break, some were still working hard, including PC’s Individual Speech team. The State Individual Speech Competition was held on Saturday, March 11 at Vinton Shellsburg High School. PC sent nine competitors to State, all who qualified by receiving I ratings at Districts. Of the nine performers, eight were given I ratings.
“Individual speech has gone extremely well this year,” said senior Jalayna Morgan, who performed a poetry excerpt. “As a senior, it’s awesome to see so many people being passionate about this because I know that they will continue throughout the next few years!”
